Principles of Excellence

The University of Arizona proudly participates in the Principles of Excellence as directed by President Obama’s Executive Order. A student may submit a complaint if they believe their school is failing to follow the Principles of Excellence (i.e. unfair recruiting practices, credit transfer or change in degree requirements) through a centralized online reporting system via the Department of Defense website.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official US government website.
